100 Christmas Dollies: Select Your Dollies

Every year Surprised by Hope looks for pastors and church leaders who attended our Entrepreneurship Series workshops and applied what they learned toward building their church. Their work is evidenced by a united and contributing church body, and as an already-in-progress project. This means that church members are motivated to grow their church even without us and that our gift is only a small portion of the overall provision.


In preparation for that gift, we provide local tailors, led by a national pastor, dolly orders thereby giving them all the opportunity to earn a little extra money for their families. On Christmas day, we celebrate with the selected church body by sharing the Word, enjoying a Christmas meal, and giving a dolly gift to 100 the children of that church and community. Shortly thereafter we meet the pastor in town to purchase all they need to bring their church to the next phase of construction.

Your $25 sponsorship provides work for tailors, helps build a church, and gives a meal and a gift to East African children on Christmas. Following our Christmas gift giving, we will send you a photo of the dolly you sponsored along with its new mommy or daddy. All we ask is that you pray for that child and that church throughout the year. What other gift gives is so many important ways? Join together with others to bring this blessing to an East African church family.
